Outside The Law


Published 1920


Outside the Law is a 1920 crime film directed by Tod Browning. Browning remade the film in 1930.

Black Mike (Lon Chaney) is a despicable gangster who lures Molly (Priscilla Dean), the daughter of a San Francisco underworld leader, back to a life of crime. Mike frames Molly's father for murder and then plots to double-cross her as well. But Molly's hard heart is slowly melted by her gangster lover. The film ends with in a climactic shootout.

The print in a little murky so some title cards are difficult to read. Adjusting contrast should fix this.
